    Well, lately I have been buying bikes and have come accros more than one that just isn't correct.

    Since you can buy vintage decals and can color match, repaint, etc., I am assuming there are a few out ther.

    Because I want to avoid this, I'm asking others here, what signs are they [you] are looking for when buying a bike that is supposed to be authentic.

    I don't consider it a fake if an original is stripped down, repainted and fresh decals of the same vintage are applied and the owner discloses what has been done to the bike.

    I support you, I'm also interested in how to determine whether the bike is original when buying from hand and what you need to pay attention to.
